Legendary Iceland

FlyOver in Las Vegas provides guests with an exhilarating flight ride over some of Iceland’s most iconic natural wonders, hard-to-reach locations and picturesque scenery. Riders glide over nearly 30 different landmarks and locations throughout the Icelandic region including the Aldeyjarfoss waterfall, the Markarfljótsgljúfur Canyon, Þrídrangar Island, the Mælifell volcano, the Dyrhólaey cliffs and more.

FlyOver uses a state-of-the-art moving platform with six degrees of motion to make visitors feel as though they are soaring, dipping and diving like a bird. Shown in stunning 8k resolution on a massive 52.5ft screen, location-specific mists, scents and wind fully immerse guests in the action taking place all around them on a spherical screen.

The experience begins with a pre-show designed by Montreal-based Moment Factory. Guiding guests through the role of nature, time and humankind is a troll named Su Vitra, also known as The Wise One. Su Vitra was designed by English-Icelandic illustrator Brian Pilkington and symbolizes the wisdom and enchantment of Iceland. Water, fire, land and more are projected on the floor and shown on a suspended screen as Su Vitra shares tales of Iceland’s history, leaving visitors with a poetic vision of the country.

After the pre-show, visitors board the flight ride where they soar to tremendous heights. Riders are immersed in breathtaking sights of the country accentuated with a mesmerizing musical score crafted by Icelandic composers Kjartan Holm, Paul Corley, Daníel Bjarnason and Georg Hólm, all known for their work with the legendary band Sigur Rós.

The Iceland film was created by some of the entertainment industry’s most inventive minds, including creative director and former Walt Disney Imagineer Rick Rothschild and Cannes Lion Award-winning film director Dave Mossop. Rothschild and Mossop joined with helicopter pilot Jón Kjartan Björnsson – known for his work on popular productions including HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and movies “Oblivion” and “Flags of Our Fathers” – to shoot the scenes shown in the fight ride film.
